We have 18 initial bytes of a vsam key out of the total 31 bytes.
Now, we are trying to start the vsam file dynamically by first populating the whole key with low-values and then moving the available 18 bytes to the key. and then we gave a readnext.
But we could see that the file status is 23 after starting with 'equal to' clause. so, we are not able to point to the correct record even though we have records matching the partial key in the VSAM file.
can anyone please help on finding what could be the correct approach?
